    My guess is Bill Russell.

      Nelson Liriano, Sam Mertes, Horace Clarke, Denny Doyle, Billy Williams, Patsy Dougherty, Cesar Tovar, Manny Sanguillen, Don Blasingame, or Zoilo Versalles?
      Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

        How about Don Hoak?

          Apparently the originator's answers aren't ubiquitous

            Your reply is the exact opposite of the meaning of the word.

              If Don Hoak is an answer what games did he break up the no hitter and in what game did he cost a perfect game?

              I cannot find any instances where Billy Williams cost his team a perfect game. Nor Mertes, nor probably any other name on the list except for Bill Russel. The others seem to have only broken up multiple no-hitters which is only part of the answer.

                  Charlie Hayes made an error in Terry Mullholland's no hitter on 8/15/1990 which allowed the only base runner to reach base.

                  He also got the only hit against Jose Rijo on 9/25/93. However I can't find any mention of him breaking up another no-hitter.

                    Hayes got a single where the opposing starter faced the minimum but he didn't have the first or only hit

                      Ferris Fain? Dave Harris?

                      I believe both made errors as the only baserunnners in a perfect game. These are in addition to Hayes and Russell already mentioned.

                        Fain's error cost his team a perfect game but what were the games where he broke up a no-hitter?

                        Dave Harris broke up an opposing teams perfect game but I do not see where he cost his own team a perfect game or where else he broke up an opposing teams no-hitter.

                        Charlie Hayes cost his team a perfect game, but all I can find is him breaking up one no hitter.

                        By the way here is an article about perfect games and who cost them the perfect game by anything other then a hit.

                          Hoak made a throwing error that cost Harvey Haddix his perfect game in the 13th.

                            What were the no-hitters that Hoak broke up?

                            Hoak's error is an iffy considering what happened afterwards in that inning. What I'm looking for in terms of perfect games are errors that cost them a perfect game. Meaning if the error hadn't happened it would be a perfect game. Hoak had an error on the leadoff batter and later in the inning there were other events that ruined the perfect game as well so to me its an iffy one.

                              Honestly, I can't think of anything. Oh well. I'd like to know the answer, please
